  • Description 

    This climb is on Redgarden Wall, on the West side trail just uphill from Mr. Natural, which is before the wooden stairs.

    The route climbs up the closed-book dihedral/chimney just 12' left of Mr. Natural. It ascends about 40' to the rap tree on Mr. Natural. Why bother though? I was there, I read what the book said (don't waste your time), but I was heading in and tried the line anywhere.

    This was not the worst climb I have done in Eldo, but if it had been 200' feet of this same garbage, it would have come close to Cardinal Richelieu for that title.


    Who cares- it's bad rock and not worth doing anyway. I guess a light rack or TR from Mr Natural.

    I didn't think this was quite as bad as the description made it out to be. The rock isn't the best, but it's far from bad, and while the movement is awkward, it's still pretty fun. Definitely don't put this climb on the must do list, but if you're bored and looking for something new, this offers an interesting diversion for a few minutes.

    Loved It! The hardest moves are the ones off the ground. No large pro required. Good rock quality. Excellent chimney experience. Bonus top rope of Mr. Natural.
